Antwerp Expo stands in sympathy and support of everyone affected by the current COVID-19 outbreak, whether directly or indirectly.
The exhibitions and events industry exists to provide platforms for people and industries to meet, to trade, and to collaborate. These gatherings are especially important in times of disruption. It is our obligation to maintain opportunities for people to meet wherever possible.
Small and medium businesses in all industries in particular depend on exhibitions. And, like all types of events, they support the economy worldwide. We are committed to providing these much-needed meeting places. When it comes to health, we will rely on the experts in that field, from global bodies like the World Health Organisation but also the national, regional, and local health authorities. We will follow their advice to keep participants safe.
We confirm that we are both supportive of the markets and communities we serve, and resilient in challenging times.
